Flore CONSERVATION AREA
Generally speaking, Conservation Areas within a village or community are designed to preserve and enhance those areas of the built environment which are deemed to be of particular architectural or historic interest.
They can be found in a wide range of urban and rural locations across the country.
In the summer of 2018 Daventry Destrict Council (DDC) approved the designation of a Conservation Area for a large part of the historic core of the village of Flore.
A map of area that is designated as a Conservation Area, together with its accompanying ‘Flore Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan’ can be accessed below.
Designation recognises the special architectural or historic merits of an area, and in the case of Flore this is set out clearly in the Area Appraisal and Management Plan.
Conservation status does introduce additional obligations on property owners to seek permission from Daventry District Council. For information on this please see page 50 of the Plan and please do check with DDC before undertaking works that you may suspect need planning permission.
